Anwar Sadat has been pretty busy the last few months with tons of out of town shows as well as a spate of Louisville gigs. They’ve been laying down some groundwork in anticipation for a new 12″ record entitled “Gold” which will be hitting the streets and the web on March 8th, 2013. On the 8th, Cropped Out, The Other Side of Life, and Astro Black will present a release show at Quills/Astro Black to celebrate. Also playing the show will be Whips/Chains and The New Mexico (thought they were done, shows what little I know). The show will be at 10pm for $5, and of course all ages.
“They sound totally Boston circa 1982: aggressively shouted vocals, aggressive rhythms, jaggedly distorted guitars and just enough melody above the noise to make them catchy as hell.”
If you’re stoked on the new record (and by most accounts, you should be), and don’t want to leave the supply to chance, the band will be offering up preorders starting on February 12th, presumably on their Bandcamp as well as through their Facebook page.
In support of the release, Anwar Sadat will hit the road, embarking on a full East Coast tour as well as a Southern US tour. Full tour dates should be coming soon, I’ll make sure to edit this post when they come in.
